„Extremism is so easy. You've got your position, and that's it. It doesn't take much thought. And when you go far enough to the right you meet the same idiots coming around from the left.

„Oh, come on, you've got to use your flow.
You know what it's like, and you know you want to go.“

—  Kate Bush British recording artist; singer, songwriter, musician and record producer 1958

Song lyrics, Lionheart (1978)
Context: Oh, come on, you've got to use your flow.
You know what it's like, and you know you want to go.
Don't drive too slowly.
Don't put your blues where your shoes should be.
Don't put your foot on the heartbrake.

„And when you're alone there's a very good chance
you'll meet things that scare you right out of your pants
There are some, down the road between hither and yon,
that can scare you so much you won't want to go on.“

—  Dr. Seuss American children's writer and illustrator, co-founder of Beginner Books 1904 - 1991

„But of course you should have retreated at once from the dominant male. Are you an idiot? You are extremely lucky he was distracted from ripping out your throat by the fruit. He thought you were trying to steal his females.“

—  Cassandra Clare, The Bane Chronicles

"Pardon me, but we did not have the time to exchange that kind of personal information. I could not have known! Moreover, I wish to assure both of you that I did not make any amorous advances on female monkeys. [...] I didn't actually see any, so I didn't get the chance."
Giulana and Magnus Bane in 1791, p. 13.

„When you write a computer program you've got to not just list things out and sort of take an algorithm and translate it into a set of instructions. But when there's a bug — and all programs have bugs — you've got to debug it. You've got to go in, change it, and then re-execute … and you iterate. And that iteration is really a very, very good approximation of learning.“

—  Nicholas Negroponte American computer scientist 1943
